Rationale of Education Evaluation.
Strevell, Wallace H., Ed.
This document, produced through an ESEA Title III grant, contains seven position papers on education evaluation from the standpoints of psychology, sociology, political science, business management, school administration, and computer science. The first paper summarizes the history of educational program evaluation and reviews current theories and techniques. The second discusses the implications of viewing evaluation as equivalent to, or a special case of, behavioral-science research. The third is concerned with subcultures of the school, self-actualization, and student evaluation. Evaluation of school-control is discussed in the fourth paper, with emphasis on dominant-submissive relationships which are customary in bureaucracies. The administrative function in evaluation is discussed in the fifth. The last two papers discuss program evaluation and the quantification of education for planning applications that use models for evaluation. An 87-entry bibliography is appended. (DE)
